The '90s brought us the grunge look, (good) Madonna, and one long list of cult-classic moviegoing experiences. It also gave us a decade of perfect teen-angst melodrama that you are still reliving with your friends 20 years later. This weekend, call up your best bud, put on your favorite flannel, pop in the VHS, and munch on our '90s-inspired fare.
Movie: "Empire Records" (1995)
Drink: Bourbon-Cranberry Shrub
Your '90s-movie marathon will not be complete without a musical ode to the Cranberries. We're pretty sure Dolores O'Riordan's voice carried us through our mood rings and tattoo sketch chokers.

Snack: The Chocolate Eclair
Part comfort food, part historically accurate snack (it was the last food served on the Titanic!). We can't help but wonder: If Rose were holding a chocolate eclair ... would she have let go?

These snacks have a bit of a kick to them -- but not as much as the kick you'd receive when you're just trying to figure life out!
